Ursula K. LeGuin at her finest; there's a reason this is one of the bedrocks of science fiction. The story is an interesting rumination on the trials of working cross-culturally and of the perils faced in trying to bring change to an established order. But above all it is best known for its philosophical view of gender and what differences we might find in a world where the inhabitants are capable of being either male or female.
